The rich could get richer in Georgia, as the SEC powerhouse has a really important recruiting weekend coming up for its football program.

Georgia currently has the No. 4 recruiting class in the country, per 247Sports. Kirby Smart has commitments from 13 recruits, which includes a pair of five-star players.

Even though he isn't considered the top-rated recruit for the Bulldogs, four-star offensive tackle Tate Ratledge has instantly become a fan favorite in Athens.

Ratledge already gave his commitment to Georgia, and now, he is trying to recruit other players to join him. It turns out that he'll be in Athens this weekend to help the cause.

The Bulldogs have an official visit on their schedule with five-star tailback Kendall Milton. He is considering a handful of top programs, but Georgia will have a chance to sway his opinion in its direction.

Clearly, Ratledge isn't afraid to join the recruiting effort to bring Milton to Athens.

The four-star recruit tagged Milton in a post, saying "Something special happening in Athens right now! I know y'all seeing this."

In addition to helping the Bulldogs' pitch to Milton, Ratledge will meet with fellow commit Joshua Braun. The two offensive linemen should be a force for years to come.

There's no denying that Georgia has already put together a special recruiting class for 2020. However, landing a commitment from Milton would elevate its status even higher.
